I'm testing neovim and for many thing it is working way faster than vim (I use many plugins ~80, and I can really tell the difference with neovim). All the same config files worked out of the box, but I've notice this different behavior.
hlsearch seems not to be working, it does work when I use
/ but not when I use
:%s. Here an example, neovim on the left, vim on the right:
As it can be observed, in vim the pattern is highlighted which is great. Is there a way to activate this behavior in neovim or is this feature missing?
